Hours Worked

What Does "Hours Worked" Mean?

"Hours Worked" refers to the basis of FLSA wages, as these wages are determined by the number of hours an employee actually works. "Hours not worked" are not governed by the FLSA, even if they are considered "work time" or "paid time" by the employer. Thus, holidays, sick days, or other days off do not count as FLSA hours worked.
